Those who are satisfied with modest levels of consumption can retire a lot earlier, and enjoy retirement while the person planning high levels of consumption is still working to acquire the assets to support that lifestyle choice.

I agree. Someone spending "100% of their income" is unlikely to "retire early". They may even be unable to retire before they need to placed in a "retirement home."
